Hi Brian, we usually post a new subject as a new thread so people can search a specific subject they want to follow directed by the thread heading.

I would comment on your post but only if it's in a new thread otherwise the conversations is lost!

I don't have a problem in this area Brian but out of interest which method do you tend to use?

If I was doing a roof now I would use the BuildCalc app, that gives me everything I need for a normal roof, except purlin lip bevels.

I can of course draw the geometry to obtain all the bevels I need too.

When it comes to irregular hips and plate level changes I prefer to draw it out, I just find it easier.

I know some people struggle with this that’s why I offered my help.
